We asked a ranger if they ever shut down this national monument because of severe weather, and the answer was yes! As you proceed along the scenic drive to the top, you will see beautiful rock formations and awesome scenery of the valleys below. At the very top of the drive, it is quite cold and windy in February. There are many trials to hike at this monument if you are so inclined. By the way, there are clean bathrooms located at the visitor's center.
